    Dear 2LT Charles Jerry Gaines, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    My how the years have passed. I'm almost twice your age when you gave your life for your country. You are truly missed by me and my brothers. I wish you could have met all your grandchildren and now you have a beautiful great-grand daughter and another one on the way. You are thought of often and missed dearly. I can't wait for us to see each other again one day. I love you daddy...

    As I think about how young you were when you gave up your life, I am saddened. You were just a few years older, than I am now. The life that lay ahead of you filled with family, friends, joy, and laughter, can never be replaced. For this ultimate sacrifice I remember you.
    Sincerely,
    phuong nguyen

    Posted on 6/4/00 - by Ronnie Gaines
    I remember when you used to visit and wore your uniform. I thought that one day I would become a Marine like you. This was not to be though as I joined the Navy instead. On the day you were killed I was in Danang harbor and did not find out until sometime later that you had gave your ultimate. I miss you my Cousin, my Brother and I will always remember you and how much I admired you.

    Your Cousin
